Chef Shane McIntosh this week reopened his downtown concept Ocean Market following a renovation, according to a press release Tuesday.
The Parisian-inspired eatery, originally opened in March 2014, closed “temporarily due to heavy construction on Peachtree Street.”
McIntosh took advantage of the opportunity to remodel.
“Inspired by Chef Shane’s visit to Paris years back, he wanted Ocean Market to have the feel of walking through the city, passing all of the little bistros, bakeries and street food stands,” a spokesperson in an email told What Now Atlanta.
“Not only did he want to bring that look, but that experience and more importantly that feel in Paris to downtown, Atlanta.”
Offering a grab-and-go-style, all-day lunch and snack menu, the revitalized bistro concept is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Ocean Market’s expanded menu features salads, soups, panini-style sandwiches, and crepes.
Signature favorites include the 68 Come Back (peanut butter and banana), the Yard Bird (grilled chicken breast, gruyère, lettuce, tomato and green onion aioli), and the Smoked Salmon Club (smoked salmon, turkey bacon, citrus marmalade, double-stacked with lettuce and tomato.)
The 1400-square-foot storefront now features red doors, butcher-block counter tops and a small dine-in area, complete with eat-in bar seating and a community table in the center.
Industrial design elements can be seen throughout the space like stainless steel drink coolers and Edison bulb light fixtures. Custom details include handmade server aprons and hand-crafted indoor dining furniture.
